The Emile Reed Chronicles:
1. How many books are in the series?
There are three full length novels, not including McVeigh's standalone/companion novel coming in 2017: Program 13, Deprogrammed, and Rebooted. There are multiple short stories that take place between the novels: Program 12, Allegiance, Standby, and New Beginnings.
2. What is the proper reading order:
Program 12, Program 13, Allegiance, Deprogrammed, Standby, Rebooted, and New Beginnings.
3. What's this about McVeigh getting his own book?
McVeigh is a jerk. That is a known fact, yes, but there's a lot more to him than the guy that we see in Program 13. His book, Rebirth, will take place before the events of Program 13. It will be a standalone, and you will not have to read it as part of the rest of the series. It will work as a single story and will not be included as part of the Emile Reed Chronicles: The Complete Series.
4. Are you still publishing The Program Manual and The Untold Stories?
Yes! The Untold Stories is actually available now.
As for The Program Manual: I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about publishing this one. I'm going to have to illustrate some pages, so I need to buy a new drawing tablet. I want to publish it soon, as it is long overdue at this point. I'm thinking more than likely after Rebirth is finished.
The Outbreak Duology:
There are two books: Submerged and Stouthearted both of which are available now.
2. Are Spark and Strength required reads?
Nope! Both are just bonus short stories. In fact, I've actually since unpublished Strength, so it's no longer available to read on its own.
The Lunica City duet:
1. Will there still be a sequel to Capture?
Yes, Release is still planned. When will it be ready? Honestly, I don't know. I started working on it again this year, and I've even contacted my cover designer to work on the cover. I've finally found the excitement I needed to dive back into that world, but I also need to familiarize myself with it again as it has been so long. (Reminder: Capture was the first book I ever wrote... and that was back in 2010!) Early 2018 looks to be the release date, but things can change! For now, stay tuned to the site.
No Place Like Home:
This really is a standalone, guys. And that ending? That is the ending. I know, some people hate me for it, but that's how her story ends. I wish I could've written a happier ending, but Savannah's story wasn't meant to have a happy ending.
1. When did you start writing?
I've been writing for a long time. I started writing poetry back in middle school. In fact, my grandmother has a box full of all my old poems from back then, haha. She was the person that talked me into writing a book. Some of those poems are actually available in We Are All Strangers.
2. Do you have an agent?
No. I'm always querying, but as of right now, I'm mainly a self-published author.
3. Why can't I purchase your books in a bookstore?
Again, I'm self-published. Because of this, my books are only available online. It sucks, but if you're unable to purchase a copy send me an e-mail. I'll try and help you out.
4. Can I purchase a signed copy of one of your books?
Yes! All you need to do is send an e-mail to NicoleWritesYA@gmail.com with what book you'd like to purchase a signed copy of as well as your mailing address. I'll then e-mail you back with a PayPal invoice and once that invoice is paid, the book will be shipped within three business days. (Bookmarks will be included for free until I run out!)
5. Do you have bookplates available?
Currently, no. But I am working on it.
6. What are you currently working on?
I just updated the WIP page, so that's now accurate as of 6/18/17!
If a book isn't listed on a retailer and you'd like me to change that, just let me know. I'll do what I can to ensure my books are made available for you.
